Man United held at Sheffield

Manchester United and Sheffield United played out a six-goal thriller at Bramall Lane in the Premier League as both sides settled for a 3-3 draw.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fought back from two goals down and found themselves one goal ahead, all in the span of seven minutes in the second half.

But there was late drama as Sheffield’s Oli McBurnie forced a shot past Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea in the final seconds to earn his side a well-earned draw.

Following the dramatic draw which now leaves his side in ninth place, Solskjaer said, “It’s football, sometimes it’s beyond tactics. The energy of their team to ours, it was such a big difference [in the first half]. The difference between this team and last year’s team is huge.

“At 2-0 down my mind’s going back to Everton. Last year we would have been three, four or five down. There is no doubt about the drive, the attitude, the energy of these boys.”

And in regards to why United were so poor for most of the game, the 46-year-old candidly responded, “They looked like they wanted it more than us and believed more than us. We had one shot on target in the first half and that’s unacceptable – not good enough. It’s mixed emotions because we have not performed in the majority of the game. But these boys showed what we are capable of – if we’re right.”
